Employee InformationAllocation and Modernization
Plans
  • Allocation
  • Fleet Services held allocation training for
    Program Managers and Goal Leads

    the PPBES process and out year planning
  • PPBES necessitates that goal teams set priorities
    for fleet which receives more platform requests
    than can be meet
  • Platform Modernization Plans
  • NMAO has developed ten year ship and aircraft
    modernization plans
  • These draft plans will be provided to the Hill in
    response to the FY 2005 Senate Appropriations
    mark request
  • They will also be used in the planning phase of
    the FY08-12 PPBES process
